Oi, Professor, shouldn’t someone have told you something by now? Filming of the anniversary story is about to begin!
Erstwhile Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy said in a recent live chat with fans that he knows nothing about the 50th anniversary story: “No. Nothing. Nyet. Zilch.” Then he recounted a rather interesting anecdote:
“The other day I was with Tom Baker, Peter [Davison] and Colin [Baker] — the 20th century Who-ers — and Tom asked, ‘Well, little man, have you heard anything?’ and I told him, ‘No, I haven’t heard anything.’ So none of us has heard anything.”
Gee, that’s — wait a minnit! McCoy was hanging out with Davison and the Baker boys? Why? What were they up to? Perhaps it was something to do with the Big Finish audio story. Perhaps…
Anyway, something to keep in mind: We will not always have so many living former Doctors around: Tom Baker is 79; Davison is 61; Colin Baker, 69; Sylvester McCoy, 69; Paul McGann, 53; Christopher Eccleston, 48; David Tennant, 41; but current Doctor Matt Smith is just 30. Fans may not get many more chances to see this group all together — especially at such an auspicious time, when there’s a story they coulc all have fun with.
